Delivery is 2 – 3 Business Days from Capture Date
You are making a great decision! Creating a Digital Showing is one of the most amazing things you can do to help market your home, office or commercial space for sale or lease. Architech 3D Imaging is very excited to show your home in a completely new and compelling digital medium. However there are some important things to take into consideration in order to obtain optimal results.
Our technology is similar to Google Street View for your house. Virtually all surfaces wall art and objects are captured in the scanning process. Preparing for this is important for good results and so that you are completely comfortable with the model that is ultimately created and shared. Please put away any family photos, framed diplomas, documents or other things that you do not wish to be captured. If you do not want something captured please place it out of sight in a closet or in a cabinet. In addition if there are rooms that you do not want captured please inform the person ordering the service.
Editing & Re-Shoots
Unlike photography all objects and surfaces of the interior of your home are captured from multiple perspectives. What this means is that we CANNOT currently re-shoot, photoshop or alter what you will see in the final model. We CAN provide edited or re-shot still photography.
A good way to think of this is to prepare your space as if there will be an open house.
For the unbranded version of the digital showing to be used on the MLS, we must follow all of their guidelines. This means “no personal branding” can be visible in the capture process, including yard signs. Yard signs will need to be removed or we will cover them.
Objects and Lighting
Scanning is optimal when there is a minimum of things or objects in the space. Neat and tidy homes will make for the best Digital Showings. We may put things like tissue boxes in cabinets simply for creating the best possible result. ALL rooms must be shot for the technology to work correctly. Please prepare your home as if you are having an open house.
Lighting is also very important. Digital Showings are not like photography where you can use a flash from a single perspective or swap out lenses. While we do have some tools for lighting, we will have to adjust the lighting in your space for the best possible results. This entails turning on lamps, adjusting dimmer switches where available and opening or closing shades. We will attempt to return everything to its original placement but please be aware that your dimmer switches may be at a different setting and some things may have been moved or put away upon your return. Please be aware of the time you schedule, as we can not control how the sunlight comes into the space. Sunlight may create some glare on hard or shinny services.
Please kennel or crate all animals if they are to be at the premises. This includes cats. Cats can enter scanning areas and the scanner will see them as an object. When the cat has moved and another scan point is created the model will be negatively impacted and possibly ruined as the “cat object” is no longer present.
